Demand for screens of Ultra high definition (UHD) is spreading slowly due to the fall in costs, which has encouraged the increase in sales, which now exceed 1 million units per month, according to a study by IHS Technology, which provides that it will reach the 15.2 million units sold by the end of 2014.
Push in the market of the three major manufacturers of the market has allowed to achieve, for the first time, the figure of one million of Ultra high-definition televisions sold per month worldwide, according to the study which has just been published IHS Technology.
Specifically, the sale of TVs UHD exceeded 1.1 million units during the month of March, which nearly triples the 384.300 units sold in February. Although the most spectacular increase arises when compared to last year, when barely exceeded the 150,000 units sold per month.
As said Linda Lin, big screens at IHS Technology senior analyst, "from the moment in which UHDTV panels were introduced on the market for the first time in 2012, demand for these next-generation displays has been slow in growth, mainly since this type of TVs had cost prohibitive. "But with the technology each time more widespread, together with the marketing each time more aggressive of them major manufacturers, them televisions in Ultra high definition are starting to take off".
Another factor to consider in this sales growth is the celebration of the World Cup of Brazil, a sporting event that usually mark the increase in the sale of large-format televisions (regardless of whether the user can receive signals 4K).
IHS Technology forecast is that sales of Ultra high definition television reach 15.2 million units by the end of 2014, well above the 3.1 million traded in the previous year, which represents 6% of the total market for LCDs this year.
Las pantallas de 60 pulgadas o más grandes serán las grandes protagonistas del consumo, ya que lograrán el 27% del espacio total del panel de UHD. IHS Technology estima que la demanda de paneles UHDTV crecerá hasta los 68,4 millones de unidades en 2018, lo que supone un incremento del 350%.
